You’ve probably heard of gravity. It’s a pretty special part of living on Earth and even if you aren’t sure of what it is, you’re experiencing it every day without even knowing it!
Most of us know gravity the way we experience it: As the special force that is constantly pulling you and everything around you toward the center of the Earth!
Without gravity, a ball you throw up into the air wouldn’t fall back down towards the ground! Even a fork you tried to place on the dinner table would float in the air without gravity, as well as all of the food on your dinner plate!
Because you can’t necessarily feel the way it pulls you down, it can be hard to understand the way that gravity is always there, but you would know if it ever suddenly wasn’t there because you’d start floating in the air!
